Shoni Schimmel Selected 8th In WNBA Draft

The two greatest players in the history of Louisville women's basketball will be teammates at the professional level after the Atlanta Dream selected Shoni Schimmel with 8th overall pick at Monday night's WNBA Draft. In Atlanta, Schimmel will team up with former Cardinal All-American Angel McCoughtry, the only U of L women's player to score more points than Schimmel over the course of her four-year career.

Schimmel became just the fifth Cardinal, and the second woman, ever to score 2,000 points in her Louisville career when she breached the mark during her senior season. She left Louisville with 2,174 points, second only to McCoughtry on the women's side. Schimmel also finished her U of L career with 387 made three-point shots, five shy of the Division-I mark of 392 held by Kansas State's Laurie Koehn.

A 2014 All-American, Schimmel holds the school record for career three-pointers and also set the school record, knocking down 118 treys in her senior season. Schimmel also owns the school record for threes in a game, connecting on nine against Memphis this season. She led the Cardinals in scoring with 17.1 points per game and assists (3.8) this season.

Congrats to Shoni and best of luck at the next level.
